Prayer for this Day for our Nation
I was thinking last night that God does give us a promise for our nation in 2 Chronicles.
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
This tells me that our nation can be healed and return to receiving God’s blessing.
However, in order to receive God’s blessings, we must do our part and humble ourselves to the point we will pray and seek the face of God. Then we need to individually turn from our wicked ways. If we do this, then God, our Father will forgive our sins and restore this land.
So today, I call upon every child of God who acknowledges Him, to humble yourself and pray, seeking God’s face to point out the sin in our lives. I ask that we each decide to turn from our various sins and ask God’s forgiveness upon us and also upon our nation. We can then claim His problem to forgive our sins and heal our land.
Lord, I do pray to You today that Your Holy Spirit will shown me the sins in my life, especially the hidden ones, and that You will help me repent and turn from those sins. I ask this today Lord so that I can be a better follower of Your Son. I also ask this out of love of my country and my desire to see the US healed and so once again can she can be called a “Christian Nation”. Lord I pray we can be “under God” and truly offer liberty and justice for all.
Lord, I ask also that you burden the hearts of Your people all across this land, to do the same and seek Your face and ask forgiveness for sins. I pray You will hear these prayers from Your throne and will forgive each of us and heal our land.
Lord, I also ask that Your Holy Spirit go out unto all the people of this land who live in spiritual darkness, convicting each of the need to change their hearts and turn to You and away from their sins. I pray they will feel the need to seek You and to repent of the sins in their lives and follow after Your precepts and after Your Son Jesus.
I pray that You will chain Satan and his minions all across this land, so that they do not roam about, attempting to main, kill and destroy. I pray Your mighty angels will fight them to protect our nation and to rescue it from their grasps.
I pray for our government officials and those who hold high offices, that they too will each be burdened to seek after Your face and Your love and Your forgiveness. I pray each will seek You in their lives so they can do their official duties in ways that please You dear Lord.
I pray that those who are completely turned over to evil and corruption and the worship of the enemy, be found out and be brought to justice for their unlawful actions. I pray they will be sentenced and locked up for many years and that during that time, they have a chance to hear about You and Your word so they too can come to follow you.
I pray Father God that you forgive me my many sins and unholy thoughts and that You will strengthen my faith so that I can be worthy to do Your will and work for Your kingdom in this earthly life I have.
I pray that Your Spirit will rest on me and grant me —the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. I pray I will delight in obeying the Lord and I will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay (that You will grant me great discernment).”
And finally Lord I pray this same anointing for our new President and Vice President, that they too be granted the spirits of wisdom and understanding, of counsel and night and of knowledge and the fear of You. I pray they each will delight in following after and obeying You and will not judge others by appearance and that You will grant them discernment to see what is right and wrong and they will choose what is right.
I pray all these things today in the name of Jesus, Your Son and my Savior. Amen.
